Then it will certainly excite you to hear that "quadrature mixer" is the 
maths-light term for the more math-heavy description "mixer that works with 
analytic signals" (and for the more practically minded description "single-
sideband mixer").  "Mixing" refers to modulation, which is a multiplication 
in the time-domain or equally a folding operation in the frequency domain.  
"Analytic signal" is a description of a signal by a superposition of complex 
exponentials instead of real-valued functions.
